Corey Taylor has shared details of the time he made a calamitous investment in supplying fish to pet stores.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman was asked in a new interview about the best and worst money hes ever spent, and he cited the venture into fish retail as a firm contender for the latter.

A friend of mine, a tattoo artist, hit me up to invest in a tattoo shop, Taylor told Mens Health. There werent a lot of tattoo shops in Iowa, so I was, like, Yeah, its great.

However, he decided to put it in the middle of nowhere, in a town in the middle of nowhere, where nobody could get to it. And then, a relative of mine convinced me to invest in pet stores, in supplying pets fish for pet stores around the area. And that was a lot.

He continued: Needless to say, drugs got involved, and not only did the entire operation get seized, almost all the animals died, and then tax time came, and I didnt even know that you were supposed to set stuff aside for taxes. I found a really great accountant, money manager. He walked me through the steps that it would take to kind of get back to where we needed to be.

Basically, it was a very, very, very expensive lesson.

Discussing the best money he ever spent, Taylor cited a number of fun items hed acquired over the years including a Spider-Man pinball machine and a Boba Fett helmet signed by Star Wars creator George Lucas as well as property investment.

Last weekend (October 4) Taylor revealed thatSlipknotare in the early stages of preparing the follow-up to last years We Are Not Your Kind.
